Loving…Urban Pastels from @Home

Wow, I love pretty much everything in the @Home Spring 2013 collection.  The Urban Pastels collection is packed full of ice-cream colours, along with feminine patterns and textures.  I definitely have my eye on the pastel filing drawers (be still my little OCD heart) and the vintage kitchen scale and mixing bowl.

All items are available from @Home.

Loving…lemonade & popsicles

Oh my goodness, it’s been a long time since my last post!  I’ve been missing it so much, but unfortunately things have just got really busy (typical for the end of the year).  I’m glad to say that I have a couple of sneaky treats up my sleeve, so keep an eye out!

In the meantime, I’ve been thinking about experimenting with some summer drinks (sorry for you folks in the Northern hemisphere, but at least you get to think about lovely soups).  There’s nothing better than sitting on the patio on a warm summer afternoon, drinking a wonderful cool and fresh drink, or even having a popsicle (it’s been ages since I’ve made my own popsicles, but I think it’s time to re-start).  Here are some of the recipes that I’m thinking of trying, let me know if you give any of them a go!

Lemonade from Iloveeco

Coconut popsicles from Aunt Clara’s Kitchen

Pink Lemonade Popsicles from Somewhere Splendid

Loving…small gardens

It’s seems that Summer may have finally hit Cape Town (touch wood), so this past weekend I spent quite a bit of time working in our garden.  I don’t have green fingers, but I do enjoy gardening when I have the time, it can be very satisfying.  A garden can be wonderful whether you have rolling lawns or simply some herbs on your apartment windowsill, so here are some of my favourite garden inspiration pics.
